The video makes it look pretty easy, doesn’t it? Like, maybe you could do some crocheting while you’re riding you bike.
So don’t take this guy too seriously. I suspect he’s showing off.
Here are a few tips from moi, just to get you started.
First, get a bike. Get used to riding it with both hands on the handlebars.
Next, practice riding with just one hand on the bars, alternating right and left.
Now you are ready to take both hands off the handlebars for just a few seconds, just an inch or two off the bars so you can grab ’em again quickly if you start to wobble. You will wobble till you get the hang of it.
That’s all for now. The next lesson will take you some steps farther. In the meantime, see how you do with your hands just a teensy-weensy bit off the bars for a few seconds.
Important Extra Tip: Wind, rain, and traffic are not helpful.
